Best Ways to Call out of work


Keep the message/call very brief and to the point

Even if you make a call about your absence, make it brief and to the point. The more you talk, the more you would be answering the employer’s questions. If you go into the depth of why you aren’t coming, you can get caught easily. Simply say that you are not coming because you are sick.

Yes, answer all the employer’s questions but keep the answers brief and short. There are many excuses that work better when you want the whole day off.

Pink eye

Pink eye is an excellent way to call out of work because it spreads! Your boss would much rather give you a day off rather than risk his eye being infected. What’s more, you don’t even have to ‘sound’ sick when you lie about a pink eye. It’s the perfect crime!

Message/call at the right time

Be mindful of the timing you choose to call whenever you need to inform about your absence to the employer. Just pick a random workday if you are not really sick and need a day off. If you choose Friday or Monday, your employer might catch you easily.

If you do not want your employer to get suspicious, try a day between Tuesday to Thursday. However, if you are really sick, then the day does not matter as health is above everything.

Avoid a phone call

Unless you are confident enough to convince your boss or employer over the phone, avoid it at any cost. Avoid a direct conversation with your employer if he does not let the employees have sick leaves. Rather than calling him, you can leave a text or send a proper email.

If your boss prefers a phone call, try to call him in the morning when he has no work pressure. Other than that, calling him in the morning increases your chance to leave the call on voice mail. This way, you would not be speaking to your employer directly.

Unforeseen circumstances

These are events that don’t ordinarily occur, but they do sometimes – and can be used as a way to call out of work. What if your babysitter didn’t show up? What if your friend needed to be driven to the hospital immediately?

Your boss can’t ask you to show up when you have such emergencies hovering over you. But don’t overdo it, because at some point these emergencies might actually occur – and you’ll need to be able to get out of work then, too.
